Many residents of New York are looking for legal services to find help about criminal matters, child custody, writing will and testament, real estate problems, and other related issues.
According to the New York State Bar Association, there is a new way to help potential clients find a trusted lawyer within the area. This is done through their Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) program. This is an online hub for individuals looking for legal services.

The service works through these several specific steps:
- The individual can go to the website or call the NYSA to fill out a questionnaire about legal matters.
- A State Bar employee will look into the questionnaire and find the appropriate lawyer for the legal issue within the nearest radius from the client.
- If the individual resides in one of the 17 counties with a local lawyer referral service, the NSYA can forward the service request to the right bar association.
- All of the referrals are free of charge. If the individuals wish to talk to the lawyer being referred, there is as $35 charge for the 30-minute consultation. Some exceptions to the charge can be waived such as issues on personal injury, medical malpractice, veterans, and military as well as social security and worker’s salary problems.
- Once the initial consultation is done, the client is not obliged to keep the lawyer. During this transaction, it is up to the lawyer and client to set deals about the legal matter needing to be addressed.
